Coronavirus (COVID-19) research

Our researchers are joining forces to respond to the coronavirus crisis

We're working with partners in York and further afield as part of a global effort to fight the COVID-19 virus.

From covid analysis to air quality, researchers across the University are investigating the immediate impacts of the virus as well as the longer-term implications for society. 

Research highlight

Post COVID-19 care

The road to recovery may be difficult for some COVID-19 patients returning home from intensive care. Researchers at York are gathering evidence to identify which patients may be more at risk of suffering from Post Intensive Care Syndrome - a collection of physical and mental health problems that can affect patients after a spell of critical care.
